Where Are They Now?

Billy Jay

Billy Jay was born in St. Petersburg, Florida and this native did not stray far from his roots for radio work.

Billy's real name is Bill Jacobs, his dad Murray ran the Goodyear rubber store downtown. Bill’s passion was always rock & rock, though he had a penchant for show music like “West Side Story.” Billy worked at WPKM, WLCY and this photo was taken in 1972 shortly after his arrival at WFSO The Big 57.

Bill got out of the radio business in the late 70's after encountering some health problems. He is retired and still lives in St. Petersburg.

Asked what his mission in life was... “I hope in some way, I can help make the world happier”. You did Billy, you did.
